This film tells the story of Man Wang, a woman with five-month pregnancy, thinks about having an abortion and leaving the family after finding out her husband being a homosexual. Yet, she hesitates for fearing the loss of her beloved child and any physical hurt that might come along. On the other side, if she decides to keep the baby, she will be tied up with the “abnormal” family, casting a shadow over her child’s growth. The conflicts between tradition and modernity, reproduction and self-awareness, continue inside Wang’s physical and mental self, depriving her of the capability to make decisions.

导演阐述 Director Statement

近年来国内LGBT文艺片创作,在故事上从以同性爱人之间的爱情为主体,扩展到呈现同性恋家庭的问题。本片通过怀孕五个月的同妻王曼作为切入口,呈现同妻问题涉及的不同侧面。首先,同妻作为弱势群体,受到多方面的伤害,她们无法在家庭中获得幸福,也无法像普通女性一样做正常的妻子和母亲。其次,同妻问题是中国生育观念的延续。故事的主题性在于“生生”,第一个“生”指王曼面临的生与不生的困境,第二个指中国传宗接代、子嗣绵延的生育观念。
